@schony1087, It has been a while since I wrote the easier post about medical cannabis. As you might expect within an industry that is just "blossoming" with new products and better results. You have me wondering now…..what was the surgery for that has left you with intolerable pain? Was it a laminectomy and fusion? Was bone gathered from your hip to be used to shore up your vertebrae?
I have had two lumbar surgeries and a cervical "rearrangement". How long ago was your surgery? Have you given your surgeon or PT feedback about your pain level? Can it be related to physical activity or sitting too long in a car or even sleeping in a bit of a poor posture?
Neuropathy can be accompanied by what is called "nerve pain" or some folks just have numbness. What are you using to achieve some relief from the pain? How is it working for you?
Before I can invite other members to join in who may be able to help you spot on, I need a few more details. Would you be so kind as to respond?
While you are thinking, please be safe and protected from inner and outer harm.

@gfisher100, @garydoys. The CBD oil that I am experimenting with at this time is located at the following link. I am using the Releaf Balm 3:1 THC to CBD. https://www.papaandbarkley.com/product/releaf-balm/#
Hi Chris, so if you can't purchase the CBD oil what else would you recommend for the tingling feet and pain?
Dear Chris, I had a laminectomy and fusion a approx. 7years ago and I have talked to my doctor, surgeon, and he stated after many visits of complaining, that he could not help me. I have more pain now than I had before surgery. Sitting is a problem. It
@gfisher100, @garydoys, As.mentors we are not clinicians and may not recommend treatments or medications. We can only tell you what we are doing or have done. We can also share our results with full knowledge that everyone is different. The company, P & B has products that can be shipped anywhere .
Another company I use currently is Care by Design. They have legally shippable options.
Using Medical Cannabis requires patience and experimentation that can lead you to the best products for your needs
You mentioned that your surgeon has given up. When I had exhausted that Avenue, my personal trainer came up with 2 or 3 exercises to prevent back pain. I do them every day. Look for Pigeon pose and legs up the wall and a couple of twists. Seek a Myofascial release therapist (MFR). I can send you links when I get home. Am at the eye Doctor now. What kind of exercises do you do?
Be safe and secure.
Ck out stimulators
OMG I pulled up pigeon pose. That looks so hard. I probably can't do it because of my hips., but which one do you do
From what I am reading the topical works best on the area than the drops. The drops only made me feel light-headed.
Hi there @peggyn, It does look a bit convoluted. There are at least 4 or 5 pigeon poses. The simplest is good for your hip flexors and pelvic floor. Just try placing your left ankle on your right knee. Now gently bring the right leg up which ensures that the left hip will receive some attention. If it is too hard, relax the right knee. Only use the right knee to lift the left leg two or three inches. Hold the pose for three breaths. As you practice you will get better and better. Send me a picture.
Be content and at ease.
What Brand and Type of CBD topical creme have folks found helpful for PN pain and stinging in feet and hands? Any inputs are helpful and appreciated. Thanks, Terry

I also have been diagnosed with idiopathic small fiber peripheral neuropathy and have shared my story and what helps me in the discussion above. You mentioned being on the highest dosage of gabapentin allowed but you are still having excruciating pain. Your story is very similar to that of a lot of members here on Connect. Have you tried any other treatments or therapy to see if they might help?

I have severe neuropathic pain toes to knees and hands. I began on gabapentin, then my doctor tried tried several adjunctive medicines. Gabapentin, no matter the doses, did no more that make me tired. We tried Cymbalta in a similar manner, but I was have memory problems. I tried another medication that really reduced pain, but again side effects. After years of podiatrist, family doctor, neurologists and pain specialist, I found acceptable relief with Lyrica and a mild prescription pain reliever. Now, I have good days, bad days, good hours and bad ones, but I am tolerating the pain. I know that maximising Lyrica dosage or changing to an opioid pain reliever could give more relief and more side effects. My plantar fasciitis and neuropathy required many trials until I found what works best for me. Gabapentin seems to be the got-to first medication because of minimal side effects and low price, but it is not necessarily the best for you.
